Subterrestrial's "H-21" is inspired by early 20th century exotic dancer Mata Hari, who was executed for treason in France during World War I after being accused of spying for Germany. Subterrestrial uses harsh, 8-bit noise and heavily aliased exotic rhythms to explore her often violent life and tragic death. It is believed that she was wrongly accused of her crime and made a scapegoat. H-21 was her alleged codename.

Subterrestrial presents "Transmissions from the Hollow Earth 2", the follow up to the original TftHE. Composed and performed entirely in Berna, a software simulation of a late 1950s electroacoustic music studio, "Transmissions from the Hollow Earth 2" takes a more complex approach with more of a focus on loop manipulation. However, like the original TftHE2 evokes dark musique concrete dronescapes utilizing only the simplest of parameters.

Summer is coming to an end and so is Subterrestrial's Summer of Chill. We started things off on an ambient note so I'd like to end on an ambient note as well. A Puzzling Enigma is an 8-bit ambient EP, a soundtrack to a video game that never was, if you will.
